Our Programs & Services

SCANO is a registered and certified 1505 Corporate Agent with the State of California Secretary of State. We believe that the most effective way to increase the capacity of the nonprofit sector is to strengthen and sustain the leaders and the board members of nonprofit organizations. Our goal is to be a strong resource of information and support for nonprofit emerging leaders, executive directors and board members seeking to maximize the effectiveness of their organizations.  We accomplish this by providing access to state of the art, best-in-class resources and programs, peer support networks, and personal consultation to hundreds of nonprofits within the State of California.
